TTM 2018 Pattaya Thailand
30th June 2018 - 1:00pm
It’s a jungle out there.
Jacinta Mc Glynn (Senior Reporter Travelbiz) undertakes an intrepid jungle journey to bring you the alternative Pattaya and portray a green and eco-friendly destination. Worlds apart from the fleshpots of Pattaya, there is an emerald green and fertile land where villagers are doing it for themselves.
Living sustainably on their coconut plantations and completely environmentally friendly, they get fantastic support from TEATA and now welcome tourist groups to experience the authentic Thai way of life. We made our own lunch with guidance from the local ladies; got the lowdown on coconut oil and cream production and even released insects in the coconut palms to combat a deadly disease which attacks the trunk sap. Later we visited the oldest part of Pattaya with 100 year old shops and houses. We helped the fishermen untangle ropes to sustain shellfish and enjoyed a seafood banquet at the Sanctuary of Truth. Great thanks to Jumbo, Jittin, Sam, Annie and Udon. Greenovative CBT Hidden East Thailand is truly a credit.
